2023 Race: We’re Concerned About Peace, Unity, Says ADC Campaign DG


The Director-General of the African Democratic Congress (ADC) Global Campaign Council, Abdul-Azeez Suleiman, has said the party is more concerned about the peace and security of Nigerians.

Suleiman made this known at a news conference in Abuja,

Suleiman advised Nigerians to do away with tribalism, stressing that what Nigeria needs now is a President who can deliver on his mandates in ensuring peace and security for Nigerians.

“We are campaigning for unity, we are campaigning for peace and security, we are campaigning for reintegration. I have been saying that we should make a deliberate effort to stop thinking of a regional or tribal president, when are we going to have a Nigerian president for goodness sake” he lamented.

He explained that after sixty years of independence Nigerians are still talking of an Igbo, southern or northern president and added that this time around Nigerians should vote for a credible President.

“We are activists, concerned solely with the protection and promotion of first, the northern interest in the context of a larger Nigerian nation where peace must reign. We are not going to lower the bar whenever the peace or security of the nation is threatened,” he said.

Suleiman who doubles as the Spokesperson of the Coalition of Northern Groups, CNG, expressed optimism that the party would make Nigeria a superpower economy come 2023.

“With peace and Justice, youth restiveness, marginalization, economic hardship and poverty will be eradicated, Peace is a sure solution to most of our problems and ADC will bring all together” he stressed.

“This they have done by reincarnating the process of presenting presidential candidates that tend to tilt towards a heated struggle for political ascendancy solely for regional, tribal and even religious domination and not the unity and reintegration of a people and a nation desperately in need of leadership. This, without doubt, is a recipe for disaster and greater conflict.

According to Suleiman, the party opted for neutrality, justice and equity in choosing all its candidates for the 2023 general elections stressing that its Presidential Candidate, Mr Dumebi Kachikwu, is a young entrepreneur and social crusader from the South-South who is not in any way tainted or dented.

Abdul-Azeez Suleiman said his team has developed a winning strategy not only to penetrate the North but to deliver Dumebi Kachikwu as the next Nigerian President.

“By this, the ADC has not only presented the alternative vehicle for the unification of the country but also avail Nigerians with a candidate that is for all intents and purposes, represents the organic link between the old generation and the emerging new generation which is the natural and legitimate claimant to the task of reshaping the society everywhere,” he added.

According to the campaign DG, with the right political will and quality of leadership, such as presented by the party Nigeria can stop the current general and pervasive insecurity resulting from widespread communal conflicts and bring lasting peace to the South, East, West and Northern parts of the country by finding solutions to the Fulani and his cattle, to the divisive regional tensions, unnecessary separatist agitations, as well as stop millions of children living wretched lives in the search for education, and wasting the greatest asset of the nation, which is its human capital.

“Today, not all Nigerian leaders are committed enough to work to solve the nation’s basic socio-cultural problems, its regressing economy or address its precarious future.

“Many of our leaders today will prefer to leave the bulk of Nigerians in poverty, fighting each other so that they can continue to manipulate them during elections, but not showing real commitment to reducing youth unemployment, insecurity and poverty, and have failed to deal with Nigerian problems, not to mention international issues.”
